Jolie also told the WSJ that she’s interested in leaving Hollywood, despite signing up for the third live-action Disney movie – Jolie’s filmmaking career in the land of Hollywood may be nearing its end.

Despite there being no additional cast confirmations, it can be at least safe to assume the return of Elle Fanning who played the live-action Sleeping Beauty aka Briar Rose or Aurora.

Harris Dickinson and Sam Riley may also be two safe bets for returning stars.

Dickinson starred as Prince Phillip and Riley as Diaval.

Disney’s Future Focus

Disney has made various announcements and updates to their strategy these recent months, as the giant movie machine intends to ensure its future projects can be better received by fans and critics relative to some of its more recent releases.

The box office has also been a concern for the studio, with various major studio releases this year seeing far less success at the box office than prior years have seen.

One primary part of Disney’s future focus will be for the studio to lean more toward its self-owned IP titles such as the upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.
